as I am writing this I am currently In Toronto! I've been travelling around with some good friends who are here for a union convention, I can tell you, after all this crap going on it was nice to be away!
About week ago I arrived in Ottawa, where I attended Capital pride, which was HUGE and amazing! I can't tell you how trilled I was to be there, and I got some nice pins and stuff too! also later on that week I went with again the friends I'm staying with now, to Star Wars Identities, which I can tell you right now, was awesome! not only was it interactive, but it also had a lot of great props and art from the movies, and I got to see some original concept art for some of the characters and places. beautiful stuff really! then shortly after that we went and saw the Aviation and Space museum ( it was hosting the Star Wars exhibit, and we got to go free ) where we got some good memories, and some more than hilarious photos! after that it wasn't long until we drove to Toronto! where we're staying right in the heart of Downtown, and no more than a block away from the CN tower, the hotel room we're in has to possibly the fanciest I've ever been too, as I'm relaxing here I'm sitting in the window seat and staring down at the city scape, it's no woods or lake, but I can see the lake in the reflection of the building, and being on the 21st floor has it's night time advantages ( like the beautiful city lights )
I can only really say how nice it is to just not have to worry about anything other than my work, which being illustration, I work on where ever I go. not to mention that I also got to meet an AWESOME friend from tumblr, as we wandered around, I went to the Eaton centre for the first time, saw the CN tower close for the first time, and rode the subway for the first time. currently it's hard to be anything other than happy right now, and still more adventure awaits!!
we'll be heading back to Ottawa tomorrow, and not long after that we'll be driving yet again to Kingston for another week, where I'll be staying at another hotel! ( which is beautiful, each room has a little balcony, and you can just look at the view. ) it'll be nice to see the water again, after being there before, and the lights.
through writing this journal, I can't help but feel incredibly lucky, and appreciative for the friends I have, these to guys who have many times totted me around with them, taken me places, and done things with me things I would have never been able to do on my own, I appreciate them so much, and it'll be a happy day when I finally get to move close to them,
I hope I can update soon with progression on my art and situation, I'll leave you with my current view!
